So A-Kon is come and gone, and now so is SoonerCon.
I had an absolute blast at both, but I was the organizer for SoonerCon. Our "Learn to play D&D campaign went very well, and I got reports from local gaming stores of new people coming to their FLGS (Friendly Local Gaming Store) to play D&D, and board games. Most of that groundwork was done by volunteers, so I want to take a minute for them. There are soooo many people to thank, but I am going to try.
Thanks to my wonderful partner for keeping me together!
Thanks to the DMs that helped! Marcus, Amanda, Doug, Denis, Joe, Matt C., Matt H., Amber, Kyle, Bryan, Chris, Peter, Robert, Jill, Chase and Anthony. Without you there would have been no games!
Next, a thank you to Lilie, Julie, Amber, Harrison and Austin for helping me keep the front table afloat. Without you, the players would have been lost!
A giant thanks to the entire SoonerCon Committee. You guys rock! One of the most professional Cons I've been to, and you are the reason. Shout out to Aislinn, Phil, and Bill for checking with me to make sure I had what I needed, and that the Game room had what it needed.
Finally, a particular thank you to Michael G. Not only did he run his slots, he covered for folks who backed out, and at one point, helped us open additional tables so that people could get off of the waiting list. I gave Michael a special thank you in person, and got permission to post a pic :D
I also was a panelist for a couple topics alongside several other great panelists. Casey, Brian, James, and Greg were awesome, and it was a pleasure to see and explore their ideas and experience in the gaming production world, since it is so different than my own.
And we are not even finished yet!
I have just brought on an additional artist for NPC Tuesdays. In the coming weeks you can expect more NPCs, More artwork, and More Plot Hooks for playing or creating your own game.
Check out our new ARTISTS Page to see bios of those folks.
Coming soon is GenCon! The largest Con of the year for folks like us, and I'm headed down with some great people this year. Gamers I've known for years, as well as a couple good friends who aren't gamers, but wanna see what the fuss is about. I am also meeting several people I haven't seen in years while I'm there. It's gonna be a hoot.
To top this all off, I have a stack of new playtest materials, and a list of Kickstarters to review. I have several pages of Building Character, and I've started on a Novel. I can't tell you much about that yet, because it's... well.. a secret.
Suffice it to say, 2015 has been one of the busiest years of my life, and it only seems to be getting busier.
So I gotta keep going, or risk slamming my face into the ground.
Thanks for reading, without each of you, I would have no website, and no one to share my rollercoaster ride of Fantasy and Fun with!
